Alternative Plan Proposed For Oakland’s Eastline Project Calls For All Office, No Housing
The proposed Eastline project in Uptown Oakland could do away with its housing component. Lane Partners and Strategic Urban Development Alliance have proposed a second plan that would have nearly 1.6M SF of office at its project at 2100 Telegraph Ave., the San Francisco Business Times reports. The new Scheme B also calls for 72K SF of retail and 23K SF of community space.
The initial plan, dubbed Scheme A, called for 800K SF of office and 395 residential units in a 39-story tower. The developers also are conducting an environmental review with a scenario of either 1,556 units or 2.8M SF of office, allowing for flexibility to pursue either plan.
Gensler is designing the project at the 3.2-acre site. The developers previously said construction could begin as early as 2018.
